The NFL is opening its doors to two more CFL products.

Former Winnipeg Blue Bombers receiver Chris Matthews has signed with the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks, and former Edmonton Eskimos linebacker Damaso Munoz is joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Matthews was named the CFL rookie of the year in 2012 after collecting 1,192 yards on 81 carries, however, he appeared in just four games last season due to a bad case of turf toe. He was eventually shutdown at the end of the season as the Blue Bombers sputtered to a league-worst 3-15 record.

Munoz, a third-year player out of Rutgers, was sixth in the CFL with 88 tackles, six behind teammate T.J. Hill (94).
